Horrible House in a fabulous area

  • 1 of 5
This place is disgusting. Stained sheets, broken doors that don't lock and blow open in the wind without any assistance - despite the doors opening themselves there are tacky stickers all over the house stating that you are not allowed to open the doors! The whole place needs maintenance.

Other issues include:

Stagnant outside pond, dirty, cobweb infested, deck with dead plants, a swimming pool with no water that you cannot use apparently - even if there were water in it.

It is advertised as one of San Frans finest "party houses" - not so! The walls between this house and the apartment, which the owner also rents out separately, are so thin you can hear everything between the properties. We were subject to abuse from the neighbours including coke cans being thrown at us and water being sprayed at us because we had some music to celebrate my friend's 50th birthday. We did not breach the rules on parties, only the occupants of the house were present. We are pleasant and nice people in our 40s and 50s who were enjoying the night.

The house is full of poor quality glassware, no cleaning products, you need to go and buy you own I am afraid - but weirdly, every other previous guests manky food is left in the pantry for you - nice!

No service, no meet and greet, no instructions on how things work, nasty, broken, cheap replica furniture.

There is a windmill which is so loud that if you are unlucky enough to get the master bedroom - you get no sleep - it is really loud.

The apartment comes with a set of keys that are housed communally so this allows anyone to come into the house without an invitation by obtaining the keys from the dropbox (which is littered with other people's mail by the way).

Absolute rubbish, poor value for money. I am also sorry we adhered to the "instructions" to wash our sheets and towels before leaving...., that in itself is an insult given the amount paid for the house, and we should have left the place as we found it - dirty.

Oh, and to make matters worse, the owner accused us of "stealing" or breaking cheap coffee cups - we had no reason to take anything and nothing was broken. The owner also accused us of breaking a plastic rubbish bin - which we did not, and tried charging a further $400 for the matter. The people who rented the place felt cheated, humiliated and harassed by this treatment.

Great Place for a Large Group! Family Affair Fun

  • 5 of 5
I rented both of the houses at La Casa Verde for the weekend of my wedding. I live in San Francisco but had family coming in from all over the country. I had driven by the house many times and noticed it because it has quite a presence so I was really excited when I saw it listed on homeaway. It turned out to be the perfect decision and place to host my family. Many of my family members had not seen each other in years so to have them all together was a treat for everyone. We had 19 people total and between the two houses there was plenty of room for everyone. The houses were modern, clean and had good flow. They also had good common space for cooking and eating and visiting which was important to us. I live in the neighborhood so I am familiar with it and think it is the best place in San Francisco to live and visit. The Mission has everything you could possibly want and if you can't find it there is easy transportation to get anywhere else in the city. Renting both houses at La Casa Verde was a great decision for our family. I would definitely do it again.

Fun in San Francisco with family

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in San Francisco and had the best time at this very cool house. I went with my family and met my parents there. There were seven (7) of us staying at the house, the house was great! When we arrived the house was very clean, the beds and bedding were good and there was plenty of room for all of us. the best part was one of the nights we had a nice family dinner and played games, the table was just the right size for all of us to sit around. It was nice to sit around in the house and enjoy the family ( which we have not done for a while) The owner Robin was very helpful and offered many suggestions for outings which we did all of them. She suggested a few really good restaurants, farmers market and a ferry ride to Tiburon which was very nice. At Tiburon we ate dinner right in front of the ferry and saw the lights come on in the city. On the next block down from the house there are lots of coffee shops and eatery's plus its only a few blocks to walk to the bart. We used the bart everyday to get around the city. The neighborhood is quiet, we met a few neighbors which were very nice and helpful. Our family will for sure be back to stay at the house and enjoy the city again. I will recommend this house to some of my girl friends to stay at, maybe I will bring them for a girls weekend and stay as well.

great place to retreat to

  • 5 of 5
I organized a small work retreat for my organization and we spent 2 grueling but productive days at the house.

The house was lovely, the patio was a great place to take breaks, and the neighborhood -- with ready access to food, coffee, and beautiful murals -- were all much appreciated by our staff. Everything in the house worked, which is also a nice surprise with house rentals. AND its solar and wind powered! How cool is that?

great idea, needs a good overhaul

  • 3 of 5
Place was easy to find, it was unfortunate the system for getting in the apartment was not explained properly and key system didn't work due to not being reset by previous occupants. Bad things; shower didn't always work, hot tub worked but controls were broke, wi fi never worked, sofa in lounge held up by tin of paint! If some one is renting other apartment, owned by same person, and they decide to have party and put pool on then it is extremely noisy. shame there was not another bathroom attached to the third bedroom.Bbq on deck was not cleaned after previous occupants, did make all previous know to owner so might have been sorted now but didn't get much of reaction at time of us being there. Good things; nice to have decking area for evening drinks, great location, just out of main city but with in easy reach of transport etc, friendly area and much cheaper in the Mission compared to down town. Overall apartment was ok but expensive for the money we paid.
